EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has returned to practice following a two-week absence caused by a hamstring injury.

Treadwell took his first turns in full-team drills on Tuesday since July 31, when he was last seen engaging in a scuffle with safety Antone Exum. Treadwell said he hopes to be able to play with the Vikings in their exhibition game at Seattle on Friday, but precaution could top eagerness in this case.

Coming off a rough rookie season in which he only had one catch for 15 yards and was slowed by multiple injuries, Treadwell has been on a clear track for second-year improvement and started training camp strong until his latest setback.

“I think I showed the coaches what I can do and fitting my role in this offense,” Treadwell said. “It was good. It was good. Unfortunately I went down right before the pads went on.”

He stopped short of expressing frustration, though.
